The costumes? Yes. The candy? Heck yes. But the decor? Nope. Not my thing.
(unless you count window silhouettes)
When I saw the bats over on MADE last year, I filed it under my mental list of to-do projects for this year. Since I already had black paper, it was free. Who doesn't love free?
Curved bits of paper that I could've thrown away, but being that it's ME.....well....you can see where this is going. I used a hole punch on two pieces that were the same (one flipped so that they were the mirror image of each other),
taped it onto a wrapped box,
making sure that I could still bend up the edges enough to thread through some ribbon, criss cross (JUMP! JUMP!) style. So instead of trash,
we have.....okay, kinda trashy, but in an OO-LA-LA kind of way. Hello Bridal Showers.
There are some times when you don't wanna disguise your recycled goodness. I saw this ad in my hubby's ESPN magazine and you bet your sweet aspercreme he got ripped out immediately. I'm helpless to resist that face. Some glue sticks, a plain box, and a printed up message: so easy, even a caveman could do it. It's just a gift, not brain surgery. HAVE SOME FUN.
